[Minnesota Rising Dispatch] December 2018

[#mnrising Dispatch] December 2018

As we bid 2018 farewell, we thank you for your readership and engagement with Minnesota Rising. The year ahead features our 10th anniversary as a network and we look forward to celebrating with you all in the months ahead. Wishing you and yours every good thing in 2019!

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” – T.S. Eliot

The beginning is always today.” —Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” – Neil Gaiman

Stories from the East Side

omg (the other media group) was built out of community need. When POC/I have stories to share, there is no central, mainstream place for them to do this. A collaborative effort is in the works to enhance community building and affect change. omg came out of a passion for bringing people of all backgrounds together and celebrate our lives through storytelling. Stories from the East Side is a special project by the East Side Funders Group. The goal of this promotion is to increase regional awareness about the East Side’s uniqueness and to recognize the people who contribute to its vibrancy and sense of community. [Read more.]
